very much for c-span. and what i wanted to say is that government has always been involved in the lives of citizens and has done lots of good things. when you take a look at what is happening, if you look to the south how successful mr. she vezz has been and now that he's passed away in cuba they have kept it quiet but his government is functioning without him. even though he didn't go through the swearing in ceremonies the vice president is stepping forward to help the country move forward t in the best way they can. it's very very heartening to see how the citizens of venn sale la have been successful in moving forward and putting their lives forward. they live in a house for two years and it's them whether they bought it or paid for it. it's maizing the role the government is taking. if something should happen mr. obama wouldn't have to be sworn in. host: what is clearly a story is the al jeern troops. it involves the u.s.. the death toll remains unclear. there is a related story to all of this dealing with british politics. next is a caller from arizona democrats line. good morning.
